Prices are similar to the Renault Grand Espace, although Chrysler would point out there are certain features, such as electric sliding rear passenger doors and the Stow 'n Go seating, that no alternatives offer. The diesel achieves just over 30mpg as an official average - a few mpg worse than a 150bhp diesel Grand Espace. Servicing costs should be moderate and the intervals are a sensible 12,500 miles, but depreciation rates for these large people carriers have suffered in recent years with the number of good compact seven-seat cars on the market.

* The estimated fuel cost figure is based on an annual mileage of 10,000 miles and is a guide to how much this model will cost in fuel each year. It's calculated using the model's average MPG (calculated from both town centre and motorway driving) and the average fuel price from around the country. Actual fuel costs will vary based on driving style and road conditions.

How much is it to insure?
Vehicle excise duty (VED) varies according to the CO2 emissions and the fuel type of the vehicle. For cars registered before 01 March 2001 it is based on engine size. For cars registered on or after 01 March 2001 the VED or road tax is based on the car's CO2 emissions.
Nearly all people buying a Grand Voyager will choose the diesel, although many rivals offer less thirsty, more efficient diesel engines. The CRD unit emits 247g/km and returns 30mpg.

The Grand Voyager should be pretty good if the previous version of the car is anything to go by. Some owners encountered niggling problems, but most should enjoy ownership without serious faults.
